Star Trek: The Original Series Season 1

Episode 11 "The Menagerie" - Part 1

Stardate 3012.4: The Enterprise arrives at Starbase 11, as ordered, but Kirk discovers that no such orders were issued. The ship's computers are checked despite the fact that Spock was the only person to actually see the transmission. While waiting, Kirk, Spock, and McCoy visit the former commander of the Enterprise, Fleet Captain Christopher Robin Pike, who has been paralyzed and disfigured by delta rays during a starship accident. After Spock is allowed to remain alone with his former captain, he reveals sketchy details of a plan to take the Enterprise on a mission of his own design, knowing full well that his actions will be considered mutiny. Pike objects, but Spock disobeys Pike and, with the help of the starbase computer facilities, sends bogus orders to the Enterprise. Spock beams up with Pike and immediately warps out of orbit on a course for Talos IV, a planet no one is allowed to visit under penalty of death. Kirk and Commodore Mendez pursue the Enterprise in a starbase shuttlecraft, and when Spock discovers that the occupants of the shuttle have already passed the point of safe return to Starbase 11 he locks the ship's computers on course, allows the shuttle to dock, and presents himself for arrest. Because there are now 3 officers of command rank on board, Spock demands an immediate court-martial. For his defense Spock presents scenes from an Enterprise voyage 13 years ago where under the command of Pike the Enterprise responded to a distress signal and visited Talos IV where they discovered crash survivors of a failed expedition. Among the survivors is Vena, a young woman who immediately attracts the attention of Pike. The crash site and the elderly scientists, however, are only an illusion placed in their minds by the Talosians. Pike is captured in the hopes that he and Vena will breed and repopulate the barren planet. Suddenly, the film ends abruptly. Mendez demands that the Enterprise be released to manual control, but Spock refuses to comply even though he knows that his life and Kirk's career both are at stake
